Uncle Hyrum is 21!

Posted by Picasa
Uncle Hyrum came up from Tucson on Friday so we could celebrate his 21st Birthday. My sister and brother in law and our family enjoyed a yummy dinner at Red Robin. My kids love Uncle Hyrum. They were so excited to see him at our door on Friday afternoon. He played with them that afternoon before we went to dinner. They loved it!! We just want Hyrum to know that we love him and love having him over at our house.
We hope that he had a fun birthday dinner with us.

Poor Boy.. Mommy is mean!!

Sisters I couldn't live without them

On August 2nd we shared a wonderful day with Family. My sister Clarissa had her 1st baby blessed on this day by her husband Mark. We are so grateful that Landon has joined our family. Mark gave Landon a wonderful blessing. It was neat to have all of us there to share this special day with The Judy Family. The funny thing about this day is that all us sisters expect my youngest sister wore aqua! It must be the new stylish color. I love that we live close so that we can raise our families together.

1st Day Of School

Posted by Picasa
Brayden was so excited to get up early and eat breakfast. It is usually a fight to get him to the table to eat. We had discussed what he wanted to wear the night before and he told me what he wanted for lunch.So we packed his lunch and he put on the outfit he had picked out. He was so excited to get to school. I asked Matt to give Brayden a blessing to help him with his first year of school. My dad gave me a blessing every year before I started school. I felt a little less nervous when I headed to school. Thanks to my dad for giving me those blessings. I think I was the one that needed the blessing before the 1st day of school. I teared up durning the sweet blessing that Matt gave. I knew that I was going to be sad, but we weren't at school yet? Brayden was so brave, he walked over to his classroom number and stood in line after the bell rang. I had to make him give me a hug. I know he will do great this year in school. My little boy is growing up!!

Birthday Fun!

On August 7Th, I had planned to have a bunch of couples to go out for Jen's Birthday. The Morning of the 7Th we had two people sick and one was my husband so I was bummed. We finally decided that we would go out as girls, but it turned out that only the three of us could end up going. These two girls are a huge part of my life. I am so grateful for their friendships. Thanks for a fun night out. You girls are the Best!!

Jen and Amy and Me.

Meet the Teacher Night!

Posted by Picasa
Today Brayden had meet the teacher. It is hard for me to grasp that Brayden will be starting school in two days. He was very excited to see his classroom. Once I was done filling out the papers that the teacher needed, Brayden had started playing with block and didn't want to leave. I know that he will make lots of new friends this year and learn many new things in Kindergarten. I love him so much.

My Crafty Side.?

So a Friend of mine had her Baby Girl just a week ago and I decided to make some burp cloths and a bow to match the outfit I gave her for her shower. Here is how they turned out! This is just so fabric I had at home, so it worked. Next time I need to get some cuter fabric at Hobby Lobby. I love Hobby Lobby!!

Play Doh Fun

Posted by Picasa
It is so hard to keep the kids busy at times, one evening after dinner I got the Play Doh out. The kids loved creating all different things with the Play dough. I am glad that they don't put it in their mouth anymore. It was a fun evening for the kids and I loved helping them with their creations and taking pictures.

Thankful for Priesthood Blessings.

Today has been an eventful day, Brody woke up this morning at 1am. He was crying and when I took him out of his crib he was burning up. I gave him Motrin right away, and just rocked him back to sleep. He woke up almost every hour whimpering in his sleep as I held him. I held him all morning until it was time for me to go to work. I felt that today I needed to stay home and be a mother. I called into work and got an appointment. Thank goodness I work at a pediatrician's office. We headed down to the doctor's office, but first I dropped off my other two kids at my friend Amy's house. I am so grateful for friends that are willing to help my family when things come up.
After being checked out Brody had no ear infections, or strep. But the Doctor was worried because his heart was racing super fast. He also looked pale and was pretty lethargic looking. They sent us off to the lab to have some blood work done and a urine test. I was so scared to take my 10 month old to have blood drawn. I held him tight and watched as they poked him as he screamed. His fever would not break and he only wanted to be held even when he would sleep. I was so nervous awaiting the lab work results. My friend Amy suggested that I have Brody get a blessing. Matt came home earlier today and my friends husband Kaleb was home today, so it worked out perfect. They were over to my house sooner then I knew it ready to help Matt with the blessing. I am so thankful that I have the priesthood in my home. Brody was not his self today and that made me feel sad. This evening Brody's fever came down and he started to play and crawl around. I know my father in heaven hears and answers my prayers. I know that priesthood blessings are real and that they are here to benefit us and our families whenever we need them. I want to thank my husband and Kaleb for giving Brody a blessing. I am grateful for the gospel in my life as well as my families life.
